Here’s the Key to a DUST FREE RV!
RV Lifestyle Magazine had the opportunity to chat with Diane Emery, VP of Ganter CleanAir Solutions, a Canadian company based in Dawson City, Yukon, who are the Canadian and USA distributors of the Australian travel trailer pressurizer – Carafan Sahara CP700.
We asked Diane to describe how Ganter CleanAir became the Canadian distributors for this unique RV product.
“While visiting Australia in 2021, we were looking for a solution for keeping dust out of our mechanics truck while travelling in the Yukon, Canada, and we came across the Carafan Saraha CP700. We were so excited at finding a solution to our Dust problem. We did some research and found that there was nothing like this in Canada, so we ordered one straight away.
Jonathan has lived and worked as a Heavy Duty Mechanic in the Yukon mining areas for over 40 years, and he understands the problems with dust. We knew that if we had a travelling dust problem, then many of our fellow travellers would also, and asked the team at Lyons Airconditioning if we could become the distributors in Canada and the USA”.
Together, using Jonathan’s mechanical experience with the technology and Diane’s 30 years’ experience in finance and business development, they have formed the perfect team to distribute the Carafan Sahara CP700 across Canada and the USA.
Designed and made in Australia specifically to keep dust out when travelling across the vast areas of the country, the Carafan Sahara anti-dust pressurization system has been tested and proven under the harsh conditions in Australian Outback mining industry and caravanning population since 2018.
It is easily installed into the existing 14” x 14” skylight vent on the roof of an RV, so there is no need to cut new holes in the vehicle. The Carafan Sahara was designed by caravan enthusiasts, for installation in all types of RVs. With a low profile external structure, the Carafan Sahara will not be knocked off while travelling in rugged terrain. The unit is designed with strong aluminum components to ensure that no damage could occur to the RV.
The Carafan Sahara allows you to arrive at your destination without the need to clean the dust from the inside of your RV. This saves the expense of cleaning products, reduces allergies bought on by dust, protects your RV and personal equipment from dust, and allows you to arrive relaxed and ready to enjoy your stay.
The manufacturers of the Carafan Sahara have a long and successful history in air conditioning, dating back to 1985. Starting out as a small family business, Lyons Airconditioning established itself quickly as the leading auto-electrical company dedicated to air conditioning, particularly for the mining industry.
It was in supporting the mining industry where Lyons Airconditioning started to understand the issues dust causes in the performance of air-conditioning, and how a solution was needed to reduce the amount of dust that was entering the cabin. Dust in mining is a major issue, and a way to overcome this was to use pressurization to reduce the amount of dust entering these large machine cabins. Being involved heavily with major earth moving companies, Lyons installed positive pressure systems into the air conditioning systems with the simple premise – if the cabin has a higher pressure than the outside, this would stop dust ingress from occurring. Lyons Airconditioning have since become one of Australia’s leading industry experts in cabin filtration and pressurization for the mining industry.
In 2018, one of these mining companies came to Lyons Airconditioning to create a solution for their remote caravan. The mining company’s geologists complained about the amount of dust entering their caravan while they were working in the red dusty area of the Pilbara in Western Australia. Due to the remote nature of the work being carried out, a standard pressurizer could not be fitted due to the possibility of it being knocked off in this rugged bushland, so the Lyons Airconditioning engineering team worked on a low profile, light weight unit which could pressurize the 24-foot caravan. This is how the Carafan Sahara was created.
The Carafan Sahara has now become a staple addition to a large majority of the RVs built by the Australian caravan industry, with a large percentage of the major caravan builders now offering the Carafan Sahara as an option.
